-Drill drainage holes in the bottom of a wooden box and cover the holes with pebbles. Add about 3 inches of soil to the box.
-Soak 4 cups of unhulled sunflower seeds in a large bowl with plenty of water for about 12 hours. Drain.
-Scatter the seeds over the soil in a single layer and press them onto the soil with your palm.
-Sprinkle the seeds with water and cover with newspaper.
-Sprinkle water over the newspaper once a day, until the sprouts begin to push the newspaper up. This should take about 2-4 days. Remove the paper and continue watering the seeds daily, picking the seed hulls off the leaves after the small plants stand up.
-When the first two leaves open, snip the sprouts with scissors and enjoy.
